Briefly.co.za asked our readers what they would eat after the lockdown is lifted and fast food is available again.
"After lockdown, where is the first place you are going to go eat and why?"
Mzansi's response was huge, with hundreds of comments on what people plan to do after lockdown, some nobler than simply feeding a craving.
Mag Dee Ramaifo: "If it was possible I'd like to volunteer at the hospital as assistant health care, all health workers deserve one month leave (if only it was possible)."
Nombulelo Ama Mahlafana: "First thing I would do is, to go on my knees and thank the Almighty for another chance of letting me live... Well deserved."
Lesego Nkosi: "Food is the last thing. I'm going to hit the gym hard after this lockdown, we're eating too much when we're indoors."
Lipuo Dark-beauty Tlalì: "I'll go home and cook for my family... How I miss them."
Rotshidzwa Mavhunga: "To pray to God and thank him for this survival, I'm not going to eat anywhere, I will do a braai home with my family."
Sibusiso Mbonambi: "I've got an appointment with that guy, Charles Glass, about certain beverages and I need to talk to Colonel Sanders about chickens. I might meet Johnny Walker later provided I can pay for our long-delayed appointment, if I can't I'll keep walking to Fourth Street near Belgravia."
Tp Makhele: "Sechaba Butchery here in Bloemfontein, get cold beers right there and some charcoal braaied lamb chops with pap and chakalaka. You can come, Admin, I'll accommodate you in my three-person tent!"
Mbalenhle Ntombela: "People should realise this is a total lifestyle change that we should adjust to. Nah, I will continue with social distancing and frequently sanitise. I will also try my best to limit public gatherings. This is not yet over, it should not be business as usual..."
Thulisa Tafeni: "The Knead at Sea Point... They have the best service and food tastes awesome!"
Roman Romeo Mumbasa: "So far I've eaten so much in the house, I've done myself some good meals so I don't think I'll be heading to any restaurant but i will definitely be going to clubs and partying so much, I need a beer."
Ladym Mothapo: "Wanna drive with a glass of my wine and rocking my shades and hit Polokwane before the petrol price goes up."
Some readers felt that the world has changed forever and just because lockdown ends, the coronavirus will still be around and people need to be responsible.
Matthew Simphiwe Pendukana: "Nowhere... just because lockdown ended doesn't mean corona ended. Duh!"
Lebza Ngwana: "What's the use of going out when there is no vaccine, good people stay indoors and go out when you really have to, I see danger here, hmmm..."
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported on a man who fed his craving for fast food by making his own at home.
A popular social media influencer made the most of the nationwide lockdown by practising his culinary skills.
Twitter user KE SHARP (@danielmarven) revealed his solution to the absence of fast-food outlets, as a result of the lockdown regulations.
He cooked up a storm to produce a dish that closely resembled the famous 'Streetwise 2' meal served at KFC franchises.
